Georgia Programs

Georgia Dream Homeownership Program

Georgia Dream Homeowners The Georgia Dream Homeownership Program is geared towards low-to-moderate income families and individuals by offering fixed, low-interest rate mortgages. The Georgia Dream Homeownership Program also offers down payment and closing costs assistance to eligible borrowers, which can greatly reduce the cash required from a buyer at closing.
 

To qualify for the Georgia Dream Homeownership Program you must be a first time homebuyer or not have owned a home in the past three years, or purchase a home in a targeted area. For a list of targeted areas and more information on this program, download the GA Dream Brochure here.

There are also household income limits which apply, and applicants must meet the flexible credit underwriting criteria for the loan program they have selected. A home purchased under this program must be the borrower's primary residence, located in Georgia and the applicant must be a Georgia resident.

Applicants under this program can enjoy two primary benefits from the program. These are 'First Mortgage Loan Financing' and 'Down Payment and Closing Cost Financing'.

First Mortgage Loan Financing

Georgia Dream's First Mortgage provides low-interest rate mortgages. The loans are 30 year fixed rate mortgages with interest rates that are usually lower than existing market rates. Loans are originated under FHA, VA, conventional or USDA/Rural Development guidelines. Homes purchased under the program cannot exceed maximum sales price limits. Application for these loans is made through a network of participating lenders across the state. Click here for a list of these lenders.
